Life Groups

Life groups play an essential role in the care and development of a Christ follower. It’s the environment where sustained life change occurs. Practically speaking, there will never be a way for the staff or elders to personally minister to everyone who attends our church. That’s why we place such a high value on group life. It’s how we minister effectively at The Chapel.

What is a Life Group?

A group of people from all ages and all stages of life who commit to meet weekly for 18-24 months to grow in their relationship with Jesus and each other.  Families are encouraged to attend a life group together.  Childcare for young ones is up to each individual life group.

When/where do we meet?

Life groups meet on various nights of the week in homes around the area.  The reason we have our groups in homes is we want them to be a place to help move our faith outside the walls of the church into everyday life.  Sometimes it becomes easy to compartmentalize our faith, i.e. God is at church, and we want to help each other connect our relationship with Jesus to our everyday lives.

What does a Life Group do?

A life group is a place to talk about questions from Sunday’s message, what’s going on in each other's lives, what needs are in the community, and a place to pray for each other. Each life group also plans at least two community service projects a year, one for the church and one for the community in which it meets.

Why should I belong to a Life Group?

No one has it together all on their own. We all have questions, struggles, celebrations and victories. Maybe Sunday’s message has you really thinking. This is a place to share, grow and learn.

How can I be involved?

You can attend a group, be a host home for a group, or lead a group.

If I would like to lead a group, how do I do it?

You will receive training and ongoing support and ideas, including in-depth study questions from Sunday’s sermon. If the church is going through a special series you will receive DVDs or other materials to guide your group.

If I would like to host a group, do I have to lead it?

No.  We can match you with a leader who may not want to host in their home.

They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
